This particular ’84 380SL is an incredible, low mileage example that comes loaded with options. With only 55,000 original miles, the car has been pampered its entire life. Bought new in Miami, Florida, the car stayed in Florida until November of 2006 when it went to Brunswick Georgia where it stayed until earlier this year. We have a clean Autocheck in hand that shows the cars history and ownership. No accidents, no rollbacks, no stories.
The black paint on the outside of the car is in great condition and shows extremely well. The near flawless paint appears to be original for the car. The hard top is equally as nice as well as the soft top which appears to be brand new. Both front and rear bumpers are in great condition with no damage showing to either.
Inside, the leather seats are nearly perfect with no rips or tears. The car has the seldom seen, back seat with center console. All of the wood is in great condition with no cracking or blemishes that we have found. The same goes for the steering wheel, door panels, arm rest and carpet. The car retains the original AM/FM radio, which is rare to see, that works with no problems along with the gauges, power windows and A/C which blows cold.
We have a binder full of receipts and records for the car that include a full rebuild of the A/C system, new valve cover gaskets, new tie rod assemble, new vacuum lines, new center drag linkage, new power steering gearbox, new steering couple, transmission shift rod bushings replaced and a new catalytic convertor. Along with the car, the new owner will be getting the original first aid kit and all books, records and manuals. Documented with original Mercedes Benz service book and window sticker.
Under the hood, the aluminum 3.8 liter V8 runs great. Once warmed up, the car is a joy to drive and handles great. The engine compartment is extremely clean with no damage showing. Turn the key and the car starts right up with no issues. The mileage currently shows 55,429 miles and is original for the car.
